Male infertility – common causes and life-changing treatments – Dr Mike Macnamee, CEO, Bourn Hall
The mystery of unexplained infertility and how lifestyle changes can help – Dr Jitu Jadhav, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.
Also free fertility consultation
Research by Bourn Hall showed that many people found it difficult to discuss infertility with their GP and were often told that nothing could be done until they had been trying for three years.
With fertility issues every month counts. After all, there are only 12 chances to become pregnant each year.
Before the consultation you will need to complete a questionnaire, which asks about your health, family medical history, lifestyle etc. This helps to make the 30-minute consultation with the Fertility Nurse Specialist more productive.
The tailored advice will include ways to boost your natural fertility, recommendations for tests and explanation of what the results will tell you and discussion of the treatment options that are relevant to you.
From this consultation, you will be in a stronger position to decide on your next steps. This might be to improve your fertility fitness and try naturally for longer. Or it might be to have tests to check sperm count and ovulation (egg production) – common reasons for infertility. Or perhaps it may be to gain a second opinion on a medical issue, for example if there is a family history of a genetic disorder.
The advice will be appropriate to you and your circumstances. You don’t have to be trying to get pregnant or need fertility treatment to have a free consultation.
Also for a limited period Bourn Hall is offering a full fertility check half price.
Free Fertility Convention is to be held at Orsett Hall, Prince Charles Avenue, Orsett, Essex RM16 3HS Saturday 2nd February 1.30
